  1. Heat a pan over medium high heat and add olive oil and diced onions. Sauté for several minutes and then add the minced garlic, cooking for several more minutes. Transfer onion and garlic mixture to your crock pot.
  2. Add the same pan back to the heat, and add a little bit more olive oil and the ground beef. Break the beef up with your spatula and stir it occasionally, until it is browned. Add beef to the crockpot.
  3. Dice the chipotle peppers finely and add them to the crockpot along with the remaining ingredients. Stir everything to combine.
  4. Cook chili on low for 6-8 hours. Serve with sour cream, cheddar cheese, green onions, and cilantro!
*Note: use 3 chipotle peppers for a spicy chili, 2 for a milder chili.
